Lichfield Diamonds junior football round-up

Lightwood Rangers Girls U16 6 Lichfield Diamonds U15 3: A tough Staffs FA Girls U16 County Cup draw saw defending champions Diamonds facing the previous season’s winners.

Lichfield were unlucky to go behind when a deflected corner looped over goalkeeper Sophie White.

But Diamonds came straight back with Alison Livermore rounding the keeper only to put her shot wide.

Diamonds were then punished for giving the ball away needlessly on the edge of the box, followed by another deflected goal to see them go 3-0 down before Edwards pulled a goal back.

At the start of the second half the city side pressed for the goal that would put them back in the tie and Edwards had an effort cleared off the line before Rangers increased there lead from a free kick which went straight in, despite an indirect free-kick being given.

Again Diamonds showed there spirit puling it back to 4-3 with two well taken goals from Jess Adams.

Lichfield were now on top and looked like taking the game until a needless free kick on the edge of the box finally killed off the tie.

Lichfield Diamonds U10 15 Wyrley Pumas U10  0: The game started bizarrely with top scorer Elizabeth Palmer missing three golden chances in the opening minutes.

But she soon discovered her shooting boots and opened the scoring.

The passing and movement from Lichfield were outstanding throughout as another goal from Palmer, plus efforts from Libby Queen (4) Charlotte Jarvis (3), Mae Murphy (2), Anna Hill (2), Natalia Edwards and Jade Butler completed the scoring.

Player of the match: Libby Queen

    A good game which turned in Lightwood’s favour partly as a result of some bizarre refereeing decisions. At 4-3 Lichfield looked the stronger side but then Lightwood showed their mental strength and superior fitness to finally close off the tie.
